    why do we post things in public 

    other than my sister i was the only black kid in school till i got to high school. there was this guy or this girl who’d pop into school for a year or two but they rarely stayed long.

    in high school the percentage was even worse. and at uc santa barbara there was the basketball team, mc peace, the associated students president, and the brothas at the two black frats.

    so trust me, i know that some people are racist.

    and im ok with that.

    if we are to accept each other for our different skin colors, we should probably also start trying to be ok with the differences in our minds too.

    not everyone is on the same path as you. or as far along as you.

    not only am i far behind most of you, but i tend to lallygag on the way. ask all of my friends with children.

    so im not uptight with the blonde girl from ucla who uttered some racially insensitive thoughts on youtube. statements so insensitive the chancellor of the university also apologized.

    im not uptight because young people are young. clearly she doesnt know too many asians and there she is on a campus where people from all over the world are figuring out things too, and also being young, which sometimes means talking on the phone. hi.

    what i wish people would focus on more in this story is not the obvious (young people be crazy), but the sad which is why did she have the urge to record herself ranting and then throwing it on youtube.

    i love exhibitionists as much as the next veteran blogger. and its true an attractive and curvy blonde ucla co-ed is going to get more attention from a youtube rant than a facebook status update. but do we really want global attention for making fun of people?

    i have way more to say about this but The Situation is on the Comedy Central roast of Donald Trump now and i hear he’s horrible.
